Wenger responds to Ian Wright comments

The Arsenal manager has responded to claims that the he is set to leave the Gunners at the end of the season. This comes after Ian Wright made comments on BBC Radio 5 live that the Frenchman might be ready to call quits on the club.

 

The Arsenal legend made these comments after he and Wenger dined together; this is what he had to say about the manager’s situation and his own thoughts:

 

“I get the impression that that’s it. He looks tired. You just feel that he looks winded. I feel that he will go at the end of the season.”

 

“He actually mentioned that he is coming to the end. I have never heard him say that before.”

 

However after Arsenal managed to beat Hull 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium this Sunday, Wenger disagreed with Wright’s comments:

 

“I don’t know what Ian Wright said,” he said.

 

“It was questions and answers. I could be tired because I get up early in the morning and I finish late at night, so I am tired, yes.

 

“But I didn’t give any indication about my future. We had a little dinner before but it was not the two of us. There were four or five.

 

“You know I appreciate very much that you want me to rest, absolutely. But I am not ready for that yet.”

 

The comments that Wright made seem to have been taken out of context by the media as he said he only ‘thought’ that he might be coming to an end and that the manager didn’t actually admit to anything.

 

However yesterday could be a turning point in the season with the Gunners seeing of Hull it leaves them on level points with arch rivals Tottenham and nine points behind Chelsea who play Burnley today.

 

Arsenal and Wenger have got a few big weeks coming up, with the club playing Bayern Munich on Wednesday followed by an FA match against Sutton United at the weekend. Both are games which could be make or break for the Gunners; with the title looking out of reach it would be great to see Wenger get his hands on some silverware this season.
